As you may have noticed, a few blogads have started popping up in the margins. I’ve got three categories of ads one premium top-of-the-page spot in each column, and the normal ad strip on the right. (For some reason, only the left premium ad is showing up on the main Blogads page I’m hoping they’ll get that straightened out soon…?)
My policy on advertising is mostly intuitive, and subject to constant revision, so nothing I say here should be set in stone. Nonetheless, my sense of it so far is that I don’t really think that I should accept ads from specific political candidates, though advocacy ads from MoveOn and the like are more than welcome. And while I’m going to try to keep things mostly site-appropriate, I should note that advertising here does not constitute an explicit endorsement from me.
Having said that, I do want to welcome this site’s charter advertisers and thank them for their support. Click through, check them out. The click-through stats show up on Blogads help me demonstrate that advertising on this site attracts eyeballs.
